    Braves have hired Alex Anthopoulos as their GM. John Hart resigned today.

    Curious to see how many prospects the Braves lose.

    Their last GM and a couple others resigned because of they broke some rules regarding international prospects. MLB has been investigating and is about to announce their punishment which will probably result in them losing some prospects.

    Kevin Maitan will probably be the best one they lose. It will hurt but their farm system is still strong.

    Dee Gordon has been traded to the Mariners and will apparently play CF. The trade included international pool money. Could this mean Ohtani to the Mariners?
